Sudden disconnects on client upon connection
Most likely related to bug 205, but I noticed that whenever I connect to a server, most of the time it'll show about half a second of gametic movement and will then suddenly time out without explanation. This happened when I decided to randomly test with another person earlier tonight and it also occured to said person.
What's odd is that it shows that the client connects and disconnects within the next gametic to other clients that are connected.
Users suffering from this bug appear to have extremely archaic and random ping times. Perhaps it could be due to mis-interpreting whatever data is used to initialize and calibrate ping detection. The client may be timing out (aborting the connection - killing hopes of fixing the situation) due to the screw up, it thinks the ping is negative or positive 10000000 or so ms. I'm going too peep around, no guarantees I'll achieve anything. :|
i have not seen this happen recently. has it been fixed?
this is a very old, pre-spectator bug report. assuming fixed
